ABOUT TOUR DE VILLE - Tour de Ville is an annual, festive event centered on a leisurely bike ride around Historic Downtown Huntsville. The ride begins and ends at S.R. Butler Green located at Campus No. 805 on Clinton Avenue. Riders will enjoy several noteworthy “rest stops” along the route and learn interesting nuggets about Huntsville and its rich history. The post-ride celebration will include food, drinks, and local craft beer available at Straight to Ale and other Campus No. 805 businesses. This year, Tour de Ville will include two routes. Our "normal" route that goes through the downtown area will potentially include stops at at the following noteworthy and historical sites: Seminole Boys & Girls Club, Five Points, Historic Roundhouse Depot, and Glenwood Cemetery. Our "long" route is for more experienced riders that want to feel a little more wind on their face, and includes stops at Seminole Boys & Girls Club, The US Space and Rocket Center, and Huntsville Botanical Garden. Bring your bikes, helmets, friends, and the entire family and have fun riding throughout Huntsville learning about the city... all while supporting a worthy cause!

DON'T HAVE A BIKE? - We are working with local vendors to, once again, provide free bike use to those who would like to participate and don't have a bike. Stay tuned for updates!
OUR CAUSE - Money raised from the event will provide needed funds to support kids and programs at the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Alabama, Williams Unit. Your registration fee is tax-deductible, and these funds allow us to fulfill our mission: to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. The ride also promotes The Boys & Girls Club’s Healthy Lifestyles programs.
The PEDAL POWER EXHIBITION - We are EXCITED to partner with HUBS Coop this year to cultivate a fun atmosphere for biking and emerging biking enthusiasts. The Exhibition will begin directly after Tour de Ville riders return to S.R. Butler Green and will offer an exhibition of e-bikes, cargo bikes, pedicabs, and all the ways that pedal power can make a greener, sustainable Huntsville Metro! Make plans to stay and enjoy these awesome post-ride activities!
WEATHER - The ride will go on rain or shine. In case of severe weather, the start time will be delayed. If severe weather persists, the ride may be canceled and your tax-deductible registration will remain a donation to the B&G Club. Therefore, there will be no refunds of donation/registration fees.
